Here in the Bair's Den we know that the best way to be a better reader is to read a LOT. We have talked a lot about reading books on our level that are about topics in which we are interested. With school coming to an end soon, you might be wondering about ways you can encourage your child to keep reading over the summer, and here is a great suggestion!
Barnes and Noble just announced their summer reading program for kids! Your child can read any 8 books of their choice and record them on the reading log that can be downloaded from the website. When you take the completed log to your local Barnes and Noble store your child can pick out a free book from the books they've selected. It's a great way to encourage your child to read over the summer and keep them reading.
I hope you can all participate in the summer reading program this summer!
